OCEANFRONT FARMHOUSE WITH PRIVATE BEACH - HIDDEN TREASURE!

East Wareham Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

You'll drive up Lydia's Island Road to our much-loved cottage, Presho Farm, at the crest of a hill on five acres overlooking its private beach on Onset Bay. We've added a lot of modern conveniences, and have worked to retain the charm of the original 80+ year old house. People are always surprised to find our little gem off the beaten path.

The house has a large sun room with a view of the water as you enter - our favorite spot to relax! The kitchen has a stacked washer/dryer, microwave, and a dishwasher that is rolled into place to operate. The enclosed sleeping porch is entered off the kitchen; it has a twin bed at one end, and a bunk bed with a twin on top and a full size bed below at the other end. There is a half bath downstairs off the kitchen.

The living room has a flat screen TV with DVD player and a small selection of DVD's. There is WIFI and basic cable in the house (access code will be provided with the instructions left with your welcome basket). Please note that from November to April the cable and internet are suspended unless special arrangements are made.

Upstairs are a full bath, the master bedroom with queen size bed, and a second bedroom with two twin beds.

Behind the house are an enclosed outdoor shower, a gas grill and a picnic table with four benches. The large yard is perfect for games. Across the road is a hammock with a view of the beach.

The beach is great for swimming, searching for shells, and just relaxing. If you enjoy walking or biking, you can explore the nearby Great Neck Wildlife Santuary. A public golf course is less than a mile away. You can catch a baseball game with the Wareham Gatemen, part of the Cape Cod League. Wareham is perfectly located to allow day trips to Boston, Newport, or Cape Cod. Take the kids to see Plymouth Rock & Plimoth Plantation. We like to stop on the way home at Kyler's in New Bedford for a supply of fresh-caught seafood to hold us over the winter months.

Our family has loved Lydia's Island for more than 70 years. We know you'll love it, too!

We've always been a pretty footloose family, moving and traveling where jobs and our hearts took us. Presho Farm is the place we've always come home to. My sister now lives in Sandwich, and regularly cruises over to Wareham with her husband, an accomplished sailor. The rest of us live in upstate New York. We've loved seeing the next generation continue the family tradition of reuniting in our favorite place.

Lisa Brownson purchased this farmhouse in 1970

Dad used to visit with his best friend's family on Lydia's Island Road as a young boy, and grew to love the area. When he had his own family, he shared it with us. He and Mom were happy when Presho Farm became available.

There's nothing quite like waking early and walking down to the private beach with a fresh cup of coffee to look out across the water and smell the salt air. In the evenings, we like to boil some lobster, open a bottle of wine, and sit in the glassed-in porch with friends. There are wonderful wooded and beach paths in easy walking distance. Across the bay is the bustle of Onset village, with fresh air concerts, ice cream, and fried clams.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This place was so much more than I had anticipated! My kids and I stayed there at the end of July and we had a great time. The house was clean, there was plenty of room for everyone and then some. The sunroom was ideal for us to eat in as well as spend our nights playing games. The water was literally a stone's throw away from the house, the kids had a great time swimming and finding shells. I must say I fell in love with this place, and I am very eager to return next summer! It was by far, the best vacation I've had in years! Thank you to the family for sharing such a treasure.

Presho Farm

This was a perfect rental for us and especially the grandchildren (ages 10, 9 and 7). Yard and private beach areas were very nice for entertaining our family and friends. Every one of our guests remarked on how the nice the home and property was for a small get together. The children enjoyed swimming and crabbing/shelling in the bay. Home was perfect and very welcoming, especially enjoyed the large sun room. Property owners very helpful and accommodating. Will definitely plan a return visit next summer!

A Gem!

  • 5 of 5
We had such an amazing time during our week at the Farm House. The house in so charming and the grounds were perfect for our two boys (ages 4 and 6) to run around. We also loved that the beach is on a bay that is super calm and perfect for small children to wade into. Highly recommend this house for families who want a relaxing week on the water!

We had a wonderful time at Presho Farm. We were surprised when we turned onto the private unpaved road that is Lydia's Island Road -- but we found the house as described at the crest of the hill!! The all-season sun room was delightful -- we ate, read, played games and thoroughly enjoyed that room -- one of us even slept in it on a lounge chair!! Eventhough the weather was a bit on the cold side, we were able to enjoy the small beach and the path past the osprey nest to a longer beach. The third bedroom (originally a porch) was not what we expected so we just closed the door and did not use it. The location was perfect for exploring Boston and Cape Cod. The owner was very helpful with information about the area and called us a couple of times during the week to make sure everything was going well.

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for sharing your house so others can have a much needed wonderful vacation!!! Anything you need, was already in the house for our use! I spent every morning drinking coffee at the beach and reading, while the rest of my family slept comfortably. Seeing the pictures instantly made me even feel a bit homesick, wanting to go back! The house looked exactly like the pictures. Loved to be so close to Onset. That was definitely a plus! It was great to leave and come home with all of our laundry washed already, so we only had to unpack into our drawers at home! Looking forward to going back next year! This was definitely a hidden treasure!

Perfect for a multi-generational vacation

Thank you Lisa!

We had a truly wonderful time. The location couldn't be better - a great water view from the sun porch, Onset Beach across the inlet and your private beach which is just far enough from the house so we didn;t have to worry about the little ones.The house itself was ideal suited for our group. The screen porch, the living room and large sunroom provided sufficient areas for us older folks to find a relatively quiet spot to relax while our children and their children did their thing. We were impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was. While we routinely travel with corkscrews and favorite knives, everything we needed was there. Washer and dryer? Awesome.

The younger crew took advantage of the free children's movie, terrific playground and beach in Onset. Marc Anthony's is quite an experience (ear plugs recommended along with the pepperoni pizza with banana peppers); the candy store next door is a must.

Again thanks! Great communication.... a great time. Hope we can return next year.
